Riverview Is The Proud Parent Of Twins

Riverview Medical Center honored with two J.D. Power and Associates recognitions for Outpatient and Maternity Services

Riverview Medical Center has been recognized by J.D. Power and Associates for providing an "Outstanding Patient Experience" for its outpatient and maternity services. The J.D. Power and Associates Distinguished Hospital Program is one of the most prestigious health care recognitions in the nation.

"This honor is so special because it comes from those we serve," explains Tim Hogan, president, Riverview Medical Center. "So few hospitals hold this distinction, yet so many benefit from the impact made by an exceptional hospital experience."

To become distinguished, a hospital must exceed the national benchmark outlined by J.D. Power and Associates. Few hospitals in the country hold this distinction. The survey includes more than 300 patient interviews conducted by J.D. Power and Associates.

With the recent arrival of the "twins," Riverview Medical Center is now five-times distinguished by J.D. Power and Associates.

"I am extremely proud," continues Hogan. "But I can't say that I am surprised that our team has achieved this distinction. The team continually impresses me with their dedication to excellence and to providing great health care experience for our patients and our community. I'm so pleased that our patients have recognized the efforts of our team."

This year's "distinguished" services include the Jane H. Booker Women's and Children's Center and the comprehensive Outpatient Services offered at Riverview Medical Center. The maternity team at the Center provides the highest quality care with the unparelled experience of being a "Riverview mom." The Center boast all-private rooms and sweeping views of the Navesink River, while the Fringe Benefits program features insider discounts to the hottest Red Bank boutiques, services and restaurants -- so mom, dad and baby are taken care of -- even after going home. Riverview's wide array of outpatient programs provides quality care and service in a timely manner. These include same-day surgery, imaging, cancer care, rehabilitation, women's diagnostics, pain management, cardiac care, Crohn's and colitis care, and emergency care.
